37: Fangirling about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend with Dr. Drama

This episode is a little bit different from my normal format. I talk to Dr. Drama about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. We discuss all the mental health issues addressed on the show as well as how much we love the musical numbers, the feminism, the diversity, and the great writing.

SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers are discussed through Season 3 Episode 7

TRIGGER WARNING: Serious mental health issues that come up on the show are discussed. A more specific warning is given on the podcast after the spoiler warning (as some of the trigger warnings are spoilers) so you can listen safely up to that point and make your decision from there.

If you are in need of assistance with a mental health issue, here are some resources suggested by Dr. Drama (who is a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of New Hampshire.)
